Loving the Vulnerable

Every day I think about how to keep my parents healthy and safe. That has multiplied exponentially at this time. And, it seems, those around me are aware and trying to do the same thing. People are checking in on us every day asking how everyone is doing. Today I read a beautiful quote that […]

I dropped off tax information, dropped off hearing aids […]
